Will Ancelotti stay?

The rumors about the potential replacements for Carlo Ancelotti have started. The future of the Italian coach will be decided when the season officially ends two weeks from now, as Butragueño and Ancelotti himself confirmed after the game. He could ultimately stay as Real Madrid's coach because the board thinks there are no obvious candidates to replace him.

However, Jürgen Klopp is obviously the one man who has the better odds to become Real's coach if Ancelotti finally leaves. Klopp announced he will leave Dortmund at the end of the season and while many thought he was going to join the Premier League, it now seems that Real Madrid could be his final destination if Los Blancos sack Ancelotti.

Either way, if Real Madrid bring Klopp in, many more changes are expected, as his coaching style would probably requiere other players on the roster. Keeping Ancelotti might be the most reasonable decision and the one Real's board makes.
